Edit this guide specification for project specific requirements by adding, deleting, or revising text. For bracketed items, choose applicable items(s) or insert appropriate information. Remove information and requirements not required in respective project, whether or not brackets are present. Comments and suggestions on this guide specification are welcome and should be directed to the technical proponent of the specification. A listing of technical proponents, including their organization designation and telephone number, is on the Internet. Recommended changes to a UFGS should be submitted as a Criteria Change Request (CCR). ************************************************************************** PART 1 GENERAL

************************************************************************** NOTE: This specification covers a cathodic protection system for metal surfaces against corrosion by producing a continuous flow of direct current from sacrificial anodes to the metal to be protected. The anodes should be of sufficient size and quantity to protect the buried metal items for a specified number of years before replacement. The U.S. Department of Transportation has issued regulations requiring the application of cathodic protection to natural gas pipelines, liquid natural gas pipelines, petroleum pipelines, petroleum products pipelines, liquid petroleum gas pipelines, and petroleum storage facilities. Title 49 of the SECTION 26 42 14.00 10 Page 4

Code of Federal Regulations, Parts 191, 192, 193 and 195 should be consulted for applicable cathodic protection requirements for specific applications. ************************************************************************** 1.1 REFERENCES
